Acupuncture Frozen Shoulder
The procedure involves inserting tiny, sterilized, stainless steel needles in the skin at connecting points on the body. These needles, typically, will remain in place for about 15 to 40 minutes depending on the course of treatment. During the procedure, these needles may also be manipulated or moved for better results. As these needles are fine and hair thin, it makes them flexible and easy to insert superficially in to the skin for appropriate effects. The procedure, however, is painless. Acupuncture treatment is our specialty. We make this treatment relatively easier and painless for you.
How Does Acupuncture Frozen Shoulder’s Treatment Works?
Frozen shoulder is a common term used for covering a whole range of problems affecting the shoulder joint. Problems may include restricted movement, painful shoulder joint, reduced flexibility and others. Some people also experience a shooting sensation radiating down their arms or into their neck. Tingling sensations in the hands and palms are also commonly caused, which worsens at night. Generally, frozen shoulder occurs suddenly without any apparent cause or a history of injury or trauma. There are conventional treatments for frozen shoulder such as medication, painkillers and soothing balms. In addition, various exercises are also believed to be helpful. However, acupuncture for frozen shoulder is one of the most effective remedies that can reduce pain and bring your joints back to its normal functions.
Acupuncture provides an excellent and effective course of treatment for all kinds of shoulder pain and complaints. After assessing the nature of your pain, acupuncturists will determine the ideal location or pathways for the procedure, which are to be unblocked. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine practices, when there is an overall imbalance in the flow of Qi (life energy) in the body, pains and aches are caused. Following this theory, it is obvious that the flow of energy in the body is not optimum, which results in frozen shoulder. As such, acupuncturists aim to unblock all those meridians and pathways to ensure proper flow of life energy, which maintains an overall balance of energy in the body. At our clinic, specially trained and well-equipped acupuncturists assess each and every patient after observing their condition for proper diagnosis of their condition. We provide an effective, safe and gentle treatment for shoulder pain. In a few sessions, we have successfully reduced pain and increased mobility for our patients.
Acupuncture for shoulder pain works by triggering points located in the subscapular is, which can be gradually released by inserting those fine acupuncture needles into the muscles directly. In some cases, depending on the patient, acupuncture needles will be inserted directly inside the muscle that has been affected or the muscles of the underarms. However, there is another technique in which the pain is addressed by needling at a distance, somewhat away, from the site of pain. This depends on the skills of the acupuncturist and the condition of a patient.
The Benefits of Acupuncture Frozen Shoulder
Frozen shoulder can be an extremely painful condition. It may be caused due to various reasons, such as overdoing an activity that required medial rotation of an arm, forceful use of arms during a game, sudden stress affecting the shoulder muscles or simple inactivity or immobility. Once a cause or trigger gets activated, the shoulder muscle, subscapular is, is either exaggerated or perpetuated by regular movement. With acupuncture, it is possible to heal this condition completely following a series of sessions.
The points generally chosen for acupuncture frozen shoulder are usually selected from the ones on the meridian of the small intestine, which run across your shoulder region. Our expert acupuncturists at AcupunctureSg will make your treatment comfortable and easier for you to experience the sessions and relieve your pain forever.
